The human actions have been described and evaluated by multiple words in the educational context of Quran. The concept of “Amal-e Saleh” is one of the most important and most frequent concepts in Quran that refers to a high quality of human action in comparison to other good actions. Although the words in Quran describing good actions have similarities with each other, each one has its unique and distinctive meaning. Therefore this study aims to explore the meaning of “Amal-e Saleh” based on the theory of “human as an agent” with emphasis on social dimensions of action and to present its differential aspects with other similar concepts. According to the results, the differential aspects of Amal-e Saleh include four dimensions: 1. Rationalism; 2. Faith and Sincerity; 3. Determination and 4. Designing and foresight; while all of them could be abstracted as being “strategic”. Such an interpretation is not an individualistic concept, but rather indicates the active presence of “Salehin” in society. Finally the educational and practical implications of this concept for managing the social life have been elucidated.
